Black Domina Taskenti x Opd

Strain: Black Domina x OPD
Type: INDICA
Origin:  Chosen Few Genetics.
Growing Medium: Soil black with the blood and souls of a thousand slain enemies. (I think)
Lighting: LED
Nutrients: See ‘growing medium’
Cultivator: DANK RESEARCHImage may contain: 1 person, beard

Appearance: Dark green with purplish hues. Nice not to tight buds and by no means “fluffy”.
Smell: New mown hay curing in the sun after snorting a couple rails of Black Pepper.
Burn: Gotta keep a flame to it mostly. zero nute flares.
Taste: Dank, this tastes organically grown, suspect a very high Myrcene level, some Pinene just under that along with some notable Linalool but Caryophyllene gives it the peppery hint mostly noticeable in the sinuses after exhaling.

This strain hits hard all on it’s own but eat a Mango before or during and the added Myrcene will top it off very well.

Pain relief: Excellent, as it takes your brain deep down under the pain and lets you ride there for hours, safe from the storms lashing the surface. This is one of those “Don’t operate…machinery, on people, in buzz kill situations etc.” strains the Church Ladies warn you about. INDICA… IN DE COUCH!

But…I’ve been trying to write this review for a fucking week and every time I smoke some I wander off into that indica induced haze and around 4 AM decide I better get to it tomorrow. It takes me down, just not enough to overcome my natural insomnia, I think I’d need to make some hashish out of for that to be a thing.

Exhale: Residual light pepper with a slightly sweet savor.
High: Sort of the wrong word in play here, Sativas and Hybrids get me “high”, this shit gets me STONED.
Manicure: Nicely hand trimmed, no shame here, a connoisseur’s trim and cure.
Overall: Highest recommendation for an Indica.I tend to gravitate toward Sativa dom but then along comes a serious Indica like Black Domina to remind me why I started smoking weed in the first place, it takes you to nice places.Emoji - Smoking Weed Stock Photo, Picture And Royalty Free Image ...

Matanuska Thunderfuck

TYPE: Hybrid
ORIGIN: Somewhere out in the Bush along the river.

MEDIUM: Unk
NUTES: UNK
GROWER: Calm ‘n Collective
APPEARANCE: Tight, dark green buds with a hint of purple.
SMELL: Earthy, and a little skunky
BURN: Clean
TASTE: earthy and solid, brings back memories of barely remembered parties around Firecracker Lake back in the 70s
EXHALE: A little more earthy
HIGH: A creeper here, comes on with a nice buzz but if you wait a few it settles in like a warm blanket on a cold winters night
MANICURE: Excellent.
OVERALL: A top shelf strain, I truly believe this could be the legendary lost strain of MTF.

 

So this clown walks up and hits me with a big Green Hammer…

Grower: Art Tic Jester
Strain:
Green Hammer
Type:
Indica Dominant
Origin: Alaska Sacred Fire Genetics
Growing Medium:
Pro mix hp 
Lighting:

Nutrients:
Advanced nutrients A n B

Green Hammer

Appearance: Light green, red head with lots of glitter.
Smell: Interesting, is that a Mango? Sweet and fruity like a bag of gumdrops.
Burn: Clean, tight bud holds good flavor many hits into the bowl.
Taste: OK, this got my attention. what was hinted at in the smell delivered big time on the inhale. This is a fine desert to be served by candle light, and indulgent treat that you hide in the back of the desk drawer. At this point getting high will just be a bonus, it has won me over with the taste!
 Exhale: Do I have to?
High: I’ve hit the 9# Hammer, and it hit back hard, I suspect those genetics are given away in the name. Seems to have a energetic head with a powerful urge to not get up and move. And as that seems to close to my natural state anyway I’m happy to be along for the ride. Don’t be surprised when you can’t find your lighter.
Manicure:
I’m going to take .5 points off here, just because I gushed all over the taste, there was almost 1/6th inch of stem.
Overall:
This is one of my favorite strains this year, and I’m passing it ahead of some really excellent bud I’ve already tried, I hope to see a lot more of this popping up!

Abula

TYPE: Hybred
ORIGIN: Pacific NW Roots (
Original Strawberry Diesel x Alien Kush F2)
MEDIUM: Promix
NUTES: UNK
GROWER: Calm ‘n Collective

APPEARANCE
: Tight, dark green buds with a hint of purple.
SMELL: Fruity, citrus, just a hint of the diesel parentage.
BURN: Clean
TASTE: earthy and solid, some nice fruit undertones.
EXHALE: A little more pronounced fruity, sweet.
HIGH: Right to the head, no creeper here, comes in like Ron Bass himself, large and in charge.
MANICURE: Excellent.
OVERALL:A top shelf strain, excellent savoring flavor and rapid onset high. Slight drymouth but no real dry eyes like I get from many strains.

Silver Buckeye

I had to take a friend to Anchorage to get his handlers card and after we visited Alaska Fireweed on 4th Ave.
As I and my friend are both friends with Ron Bass he selected one of his Calm N Collective strains to try.

Silver Buckeye has a very good appearance and delightful aroma when you open the bag, which at $75 for 3.5 grams was the most either of us have EVER paid for Buds, but that is what it is.

We were told by the delightfully attractive bud tender that this was a “Dummy” strain, that after a few hits you would start feeling dumb. OK, what the hell, we had all the important stuff finished so we could afford to get a little stoopid.

We went down by Ship Creek and found a quiet place to park (BECAUSE THERE ARE NO ONSITE CONSUMPTION AREAS!!) and loaded a bowl. Nice purply and sparkly goodness and the first toke was “Mmmm…OK.” and then on the second toke we both caught a good cough and decided that three hits was going to be just about right for the first go.

15 minutes later we were both well satisfied with the purchase (me more than him because he shelled out the dough!) and went about some Anchoraugua shopping for an hour or so. Before leaving for the Valley we pulled into a secluded spot that will go un reported (did I mention there is NO PLACE to legally smoke in Alaska other than YOUR HOME?) and finished off the bowl with a small kicker of fresh Silver Buckeye added in. Two good tokes and I was in the zone, a couple more and I would have been out looking for mushrooms in the woods for a while.

A hat tip to Ron Bass and the crew at Calm N Collective for a very nice strain, JDK Brands for good packaging and to Alaska Fireweed for having one of the best shops in Anchorage. We’ll be back! (My second time there now)

Greatland Ganja’s “Space Rip” from Bad Gramm3r

Strain: Space Rip

“Space Rip is a special phenotype of JTR. [Jack the Ripper] It is a space queen dominant throwback, so different from traditional JTR (which we grow and is great) that we gave it a nickname to differentiate it from JTR”
Greatland Ganja

Type: Sativa Dominant

Origin: Greatland Ganja from the Kenai through Bad Gramm3r just OUTSIDE of Wasilla. (No tax for you, BAD Wasilla! >:P)

Growing Medium: Hydro

Lighting: Those ladies basked in the light of T-5s for veg and 1000 watt air cooled HPS for bloom.G⅁

Nutrients: We used General Hydro for the nutrientsG⅁

Cultivator: Arthur Abel and our Cultivator Kenny were the primary cultivators. It was grown with love.” G⅁

Appearance: Small buds, as to be expected from a hydro Sativa Dom I suppose. Some nice sparkle.

Smell: A citrussy floral, inviting, nothing to worry you over carrying a bag in your pocket. The terpines are not trying to claw their way out of the bag. But they are there, where they belong until you come for them.

Burn: Nicely, seems to be clean, I’ll try and update after I try it in a joint. Bowl burned down to fine, white ash. >

Taste: Very good, sort a flowery affair that plays pleasantly over the taste buds.

Exhale: Earthy…quite different than the inhale, like all that flower power got sidetracked. Some peppery nummy goodness lingers long after the exhale.

High: Oh, that’s where that flower power went! Right there…right now…two hits in and “Uhm I forgot what I was going to say…”, “Oh yea, that…uh…what were we talking about?”. High, pleased to be here, it’s a good place…once I get accustomed to this one it might prove to be an excellent working mans high.

Manicure: Well done, Greatland has been doing very well in the trimming from the few samples I’ve seen.

Overall: I was hoping to find a good, uplifiting Sativa with the brightness and clarity that I love about good Sativas and it has it. The taste is very nice, those terpines that hang around mouth for a while reminding me that two hits got me to a good place and I should resist the temptation to go back in…aww, hell, I have to give the exhale another look…as long as I’m doing the Overall I really have to try just one more for the “overall” toke.

22.91% THC-A…Eeaaaaa yea…it works. 20.62 total THC so this should be an excellent vape strain. I’ll get back to you on how that worked after I squish and vape a bud.

Sour Diesel CO2 Concentrate

Strain: Sour Diesel Concentrate

Type: Mainly a Sativa – (believed to have descended from Chemdawg 91 and Super Skunk.)

Potency: Estimated 80% to 90% THC

Origin: Art Tic Jester

Creator: Northern Botanical

Method: CO2 Critical Extraction
Apeks Supercritical 1L machine, extracted at 1300 lbs, decompressed at 420
Yield is anywhere up to 25% of the dry weight.
The system will process up to 1/2 lb at a time.

Grower: Art Tic Jester – MatSu

Appearance: Think Caramel Carrot Soup

Smell: Bright and citrusy with more then a hint of carrots.

Taste: Excellent, milder than any BHO I’ve tried.

High: Just a Dab’ll do ya. This hits with an immediate impact, right to the brain.

Overall: A really exceptional product and perhaps the best use of trim that I have seen so far. I’m going to get a fresh coil for my dab pen and see how this does. It is a lot more viscus at room temperature then BHO so there will be no laying the dab pen down when it’s loaded. I’ll be striping a paper and rolling up a nice joint of this and it’s parent Sour Diesel for the weekend.

 

Dark Angel

Strain: Dark Angel

Type: 50% Indica / Sativa – (Cheese X Jack Herer)

Potency: Estimated 15% to 20% THC

Origin: Crop King Seeds

Medium: Soil

Lighting: 1000w HPS

Nutes: Sensei bloom

Grower: Arctic Jester – MatSu

Appearance: Tight bud, nice trichome representation.

Smell: Very nice heavy Limonene, not a skunk but certainly not Hay.

Burn: Clean and even

Taste: Sweet earthy draw, nutmeg aftertaste lingers on the tongue.

Exhale: Wait…what…ohhhh…yea…there it is…a little expansion, some spiciness, a head rush.

High: I can’t remember if I had any notable pain a few minutes ago, I’m pretty sure I did but it is all better now. It rolled on fast and seems to reaching a plateau about 4 tokes in. Not couch locked certainly, I might go out and dance in the yard. (An or two later and I’m still sitting here, chair locked.)

AllBud” – allbud.com

Manicure: Very tight hand trim.

Overall: An upper mid grade to lower Top Shelf, quite nice stone in body and brain, a well balanced strain, but Jack is always a good performer and cheese seems to be a popular performer for crosses.

From Crop King Seeds: “An excellent strain to chill at home or for moderate pain relief while allowing for mind exploration. The leaves will be dark green and minimal, while the nuggets will be compact with THC crystals and aromas of coffee and nutmeg.

 

Strain Review: Sour Diesel

About Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel is considered a “Top Cash Crop” by experts. This extra-dank weed breed delivers an energetic, psychedelic high. Also known by the name “Sour D,” this world-famous strain has a presence that’s really strong and reeks of fuel. You’re left ready to tackle your accomplishments, instead of feeling “couch lock,” allowing you to have a good time filled with good vibrations.

This sativa-dominant cannabis is mixed with 60% sativa and 40% indica. It’s fast-acting and delivers cerebral effects that leave you feeling dreamy and energized. As a medical cannabis strain, it offers some very effective medicinal qualities. Consumers use it to help combat and get long-lasting relief from depression, pain, stress and other ailments.

Sour Diesel seeds grow into tall plants with 20% THC and 0.20% CBD contents. These plants grow best in sunny, warm climates. They are prone to powdery mildew, so experts place their growth level at hard. But, with the right growing techniques, these plants can flourish both indoors and outdoors. This feminized strain of cannabis was named after its aroma, which smells of diesel fuel, and tastes of tropical fruitiness.

It just tastes like it

Sour DieselStrain: Sour Diesel 

Type: Sativa Hybrid

Origin: Cali Connection

Medium: Hydro

Lighting: LED

Nutes: CLASSIFIED

Grower: Northern Lights Cannabis Company

Appearance: Tight, sparkly, very dense buds

Smell: Earthy, almost a chocolaty smell, very inviting, can’t really find the “skunk” heritage on the sniff test.

Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel

Burn: Clean, thick and flavorful inhale.

Taste: Rich, I can feel it coating my tongue, very nice promising flavor that does not disappoint when it gets to the high.

Exhale: Please remember to do that.

High: YES, there is a serious high that starts before you remember to exhale. Very cerebral, a good “Let’s get’er done” high. My mind does tend to wander a little (4 days I’ve been trying to get this review out)  because I keep thinking of better things to be doing at the moment, or see a funny cat meme and end up watching 30 minutes of Darwin Award videos.

Manicure: Tight, no fluff, no scruff, just the good stuff.

Overall: Solid 9, a performer that does not have me waking up with keyboard imprinted in the side of my face. I’m told that after a few years regular users report some jitters and anxiety from this strain that does not happen with NY Diesel so it should be put in a rotation with other strains if your going to become a constant consumer.

I pressed out some rosin to run through my new DipStick, not a real gusher but a decent press out, a second press would bring a little more, and a 3 ton press would really do the trick. Excellent L Limonene dominant terps coming off the pressed and decarbolated rosin/bud.

Purple Kush from NLCC/Medical Seeds

It just tastes like it
pk1STRAIN: Purple Kush
TYPE: Indica
ORIGIN: Medical Seeds
MEDIUM: Hydro under LED
NUTES: CLASSIFIED
GROWER: NLCC
APPEARANCE: Sparkly and tight, not rocks but certainly not fluffly nugs either.
SMELL: Musty dankness, a good but not bold smell
BURN: Clean
TASTE: As to be expected from a PK, rich and flavorful.
EXHALE: Terpines lingering on the tongue, resiny
HIGH: 4 tokes in and I am suspecting a creeper. 8 Pm and my first toke of the day. Pain subsiding under a slow cresting wave, not a head rusher but a solid body stone and a pleasant head buzz setting in.
MANICURE: Tight , not excessive, just enough guard left to hold trichs.
OVERALL: Quite like the Purple Kush that has been my mainstay for the last decade, solid performer, looking forward to some rosin later tonight, I’ll try and remember to post pics. 8.3 Overall
